Migration of anchorage-dependent mammalian cells
Cell migration affects many physiologic and pathologic processes in mammalian organisms. Thus, our ability to modulate these processes depends on understanding how cell migration is controlled by soluble factors, cell-substrate ...
Modulation of cell morphology and function using synthetic biodegradable polymers
Synthetic biodegradable poly(DL-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) has been fabricated into thin films for use as scaffolds for cell transplantation and guided tissue regeneration. We evaluated the ability of PLGA films to ...
2D timelapse and 3D fluorescence microscopy with applications to vascular tissue engineering
Part of the definition given to the new emerging science discipline of tissue engineering is the understanding of the structure-function relationships at the cellular level. In this context it is important for vascular ...
Molecular mechanisms of monocyte adhesion to endothelial cells under flow conditions
Monocyte adhesion to the endothelium is one of the earliest events leading to the pathogenesis of various inflammatory disorders like atherosclerosis. Since these interactions normally occur in flowing blood, it becomes ...
